Long time...

...no post!

I've started a new job and have been staying with my girlfriend and her family in Leeds and haven't been able to get online so much. I'm moving into my own place this week and wont have the internet for a while yet so to make it up to Billy I've dug through my old photos from way back when. The dawn of UKD1 and the UK's first drifters.

Say hello to Option Motorsport...

These pics were taken at the second round of the UKD1 champs, 2004 I think.

This white S13 originally belonged to Kiki, the man who brought drifting to the uk. It was the first properly drift spec car in the UK and was owned by loads of people after Kiki sold it. He didn't own it in when this picture was taken, anyone know who did?

At the time of these pictures Kiki was driving, and drifting, this awesome NSX. He chose this for the challenge of drifting a mid engined car and to promote his tuning company.

Was this the first S15 in the UK? Post up if you know!

The last car here wasn't an Option motorsport car but belonged to Mitto. This car was the base for his famous strawberry faced S14 that did the rounds a couple of years ago.

We don't know how lucky we are to be in the position we are to day with championships and practice days. These were simpler times but just as fun.

Send us your pics of the early days of UK drifting on our facebook page, we'd love to see them!

Boxy, but good.

A musical interlude..
